Abstract. Thanks to the major evolutions in the communication technologies and in order to deal with a continuous increase in systems complexity, current applications have to cooperate to achieve a common goal. Modeling such cooperatives applications should stress regular context evolutions and increasingly users requirements. Therefore, we look for a model based solution suitable to cooperative application that can react in response to several unpredictable changes. Driven by the cooperative application structure, we propose, in this paper, an UML extension named "DM profile" ensuring a high-level description for modeling the deployment and its management in distributed application. The proposed contribution is validated through a "Follow Me" case study and implemented through an Eclipse plug-in.
